Quotes to Note


Over 50 MILLION abortions have taken place in the US since 1973. That means that every single minute, 2-3 babies are aborted in the USA.

It’s time to stand up together, make a difference, and End Abortion by 2020!

Make the pledge: Our tax money is used to fund abortion. We will work to stop this funding! 

   1. Pledge to Wear Black on Fridays. Join others and pledge to wear black on Fridays to mourn the lives lost to abortion. This is a very simple way for you to get involved immediately and show others what you believe.

   2. Educate. Begin a dialogue with friends and tell them what you believe and why. Use the resources on this site to help educate them --  www.abortionblackout.com

Discuss with your children and teens the truth of what abortion is and how to prevent falling into situations where they would be confronted with having to make those tough choices, and what to do if someone they know is considering having an abortion.
Explain to your children -- to all the teens you know -- that Sexual Abstinence STOPS Abortion!

   3. Donate $1 a week to make a difference. This is an easy way to make a direct impact in the life of a pregnant mother and her unborn child. Giving just one dollar for every Friday you wear black, will help... support Pregnancy Resource Centers across the United States.

These centers give women Real Choices that do not include abortion. They help pregnant women in life-affirming ways, by giving them free sonograms, providing them with diapers, formula and cribs, etc. They also help women through the adoption process if they choose, and provide housing if their families have abandoned them.

Find a pregnancy center in your area -- www.pregnancycenters.org -- and send them a donation as often as you can...

Why not VOLUNTEER at your local pregnancy center to answer the phone, do janitorial tasks, make repairs or remodel, organize baby supplies, teach, counsel, fund raise, or any number of other activities?

If not you, WHO?
If not now, WHEN?


Sign the pledge, Get involved, Spread the word...End-Abortion by 2020...

Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care PDF Print E-mail

If you are 18 years old or older, and you're reading this, you have the right to make your own medical decisions. But that could change in an instant.

For example, an accident or illness could leave you -- temporarily or permanently -- unable to make those decisions.

That is why it is so important that every adult have a carefully drafted Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care. The International Task Force's (ITF) Protective Medical Decisions Document (PMDD) is one such legal document that allows a person to name someone to make those decisions in the event they cannot make them for themselves.

Parents of college students take it for granted that, if they are paying for their child's medical care, they always have the right to make medical decisions for a son or daughter who becomes unable to do so. But that is not the case.

In fact, they may even be unable to get information about a hospitalized adult child's medical condition.

However, the person who is designated in a PMDD to make health care decisions can have access to such information. Young adults can designate a parent as their decision maker so that, in the event of a sports injury, illness or accident, someone who knows and loves them will have the authority to protect their lives and well-being. That's why a PMDD should be one of the necessities given to each and every 18-year-old.

To obtain a PMDD package from the ITF for yourself, for a college student, or for anyone else, call 800.958.5678 and ask about the PMDD package.
